Pac-Man + Tournaments hits the Play Store for free



The original Pac-Man quite simply revolutionized video gaming as we knew it with its insane graphics and incredibly addictive gameplay. So it’s fitting that as part of a special commemoration of the famed game, Namco has placed a special edition of the game called Pac-Man + Tournaments available for free exclusively in the Play Store— not on Apple’s platform as of this time. Here’s Namco’s reasoning for why Android fans get first dibs on this new take on the classic game:


“Android is the biggest OS in terms of installed base today. While PAC-MAN is already very present on iOS, it can benefit from a lot more visibility with Android users. Additionally, Google’s recent initiatives on games have really won us over, and it was a logical step for us to launch this new title first on Google Play.”


The game will come jam-packed with custom goodies as well. In addition to the standard mazes the game will come with, gamers will have the option of obtaining weekly updates containing additional mazes and levels to play. Of course individual gamers will try and beat out the scores of other folks all across the world, allowing for hours and hours of gaming fun. So what are you waiting for…? If you’re a Froyo+ user, hit the break and grab the game today using the Play Store or QR code link.
